Nordost Heimdall 2 Headphone Cable
To take things to the next level, the Nordost Heimdall 2 Headphone Cable employs Nordost’s proprietary Micro Mono-Filament technology with extruded FEP insulation around the conductors, as well as mechanically tuned lengths, which reduce internal microphony and high-frequency impedance resonance.
As a result, the Heimdall 2 Headphone Cable acts as the ideal conduit to transfer an amazingly realistic reproduction of sound from your system to your hifi headphones.
In order to accommodate the added durability demanded from headphone cables, Nordost has included an Aramid fiber strength member to the construction of this cable.
Integrating Aramid fibers into the cable design not only ensures its mechanical integrity, transferring the strain away from the cable’s conductors and to the fibers themselves, but the resonating properties of Aramid fibers also enhance sound quality.
The Heimdall 2 Headphone Cable is available with a variety of termination options that are compatible with all major players in the headphone market. Each cable is 2M and is terminated with a 4 pin balanced XLR male connector on the source end and also includes two adapters which are comprised of identical construction and technology as the headphone cable itself, and have also been cut to specific, mechanically tuned lengths.
Both adaptors are terminated with a 4 pin balanced XLR female connector on one end and either a 3.5mm stereo mini or a 1/4in stereo phono on the opposite end.
Nordost is the premier manufacturer of hifi audio cables and accessories in the consumer electronics industry. In 1991, the company first made a name for itself with its revolutionary, flat audio cables, which used conductor solutions developed from unique technologies originally engineered for the aerospace industry. Since its founding, Nordost has continually pushed industry boundaries, striving to enhance audio technologies and bringing what were once unattainable goals into fruition.
Over the past two decades, Nordost has grown its product line from just one cutting-edge cable to an extensive, all-encompassing range of hifi audio solutions, including audio and video cables, power products, and resonance control devices. Nordost cables bring the pure, unadulterated reality of a live performance to hifi sound systems, regardless the systems’ price point.
Nordost has implemented a number of groundbreaking processes and developed proprietary technologies in order to ensure that the company maintains the quality that it has become known for. By introducing innovations such as Dual/Micro-Mono Filament, TSC (Total Signal Control) technology, and the new HOLO:PLUG® Connectors, Nordost has become the vanguard of the of the audio cable industry, surpassing its competitors and finding itself on a level of its own.
Each of these innovations come from Nordost’s outstanding engineering and design teams, which, like our offices, are based in Holliston Massachusetts. Nordost is proud to boast that each one of our cables (including the first American-made HDMI and UHD cables) is handcrafted in the United States to serve an international clientele.
